Life Updates - 2017
I am not sure if anyone's still reading this blog. But if you are here, Hello! Nice to see you!
I stopped updating quite a while ago. I had to decide between prioritizing my time and blogging took a backseat. I anyways approached blogging from a very casual, chatty perspective (in case you missed it from my terrible pictures of products & swatches, and no blog post announcing the acquisition of a DLSR in 2014). But in 2015, beauty blogs started to become uber professional with color co-ordinated white flatlays, vlogs, five posts a day and diplomatic no-ratings reviews. No judgment there, it just was the direction beauty blogging in India seemed to be taking. And one I had no time for.
With my full-time job and primal lifestyle to better my health, I didn't have the mental mind space to work on reinventing this blog, and honestly, I didn't want to temper my thoughts & opinions just to build professional inroads with the Indian beauty brands. I knew my blog would seem dated and homegrown compared to the professional spaces that were being created, so I decided to take a step back.
Every once in a while, I get an email from a reader. Asking me where I am, what's up with me, when will I blog again. It's actually very touching and after quite a few such emails in the last three years, I felt I should share some updates about my life.
1. I moved to Australia a year ago.
2. I still follow a low-carb high-fat primal diet. I complete five years this September and have successfully (touchwood) kept my weight off. Losing my excess weight completely redefined my perspective on beauty though.
3. I still am a beauty addict, and in touch with all my fellow blogger friends who I admire. I am very active on Instagram, where I do short product reviews. You can see my feed here. Please be warned, I am still the queen of crappy beauty product pictures.
That's about it, right now. I may start blogging again, but it won't be restricted to beauty, and will probably be a lot more diversified.
Thank you for still reading this blog! I love you!
